Giants WR Victor Cruz not expected to play again in preseason
It sounds like the Giants are putting wide receiver Victor Cruz on the same rehab program that the Chiefs have put on Jamaal Charles. Cruz left Sunday's preseason game against the Colts early in the first quarter due to a heel contusion. It's not a serious injury, but a source has told the Bergen Record's Art Stapleton that you shouldn't expect to see Cruz in any further preseason games.
A bruised heel shouldn't take much time to -- ahem -- heal. I wouldn't worry about this situation; it's a team rightfully playing it safe with one of their stud skill players. Cruz remains a stud in fantasy, too. He's a low-end WR1.
